WASHINGTON — Harvard University has a problem.
It’s not just that students are paying more than they should, and they’re not getting the kind of education they deserve.
It is also that their families are paying much more.
According to a new analysis from the Washington Post, the cost of attending the university for students from the lower half of the income distribution has climbed at a rate more than six times faster than the national average.
As a result, the average family earning about $50,000 a year pays about $9,000 more a year for their education than it did a decade ago.
